Non Gmo Vegan Tortilla

Non Gmo Vegan Tortilla

Yesterday was a beautiful day in New York it was about 78 degrees and I did some food shopping and while I was at the market I picked up a big bag of my favorite organic non gmo vegan white corn tortilla chips that are made with the Ingredients: Organic white corn, expeller pressed oleic safflower and/or sunflower oil, sea salt.

I also like the yellow corn tortilla chips.

Whatever I buy I make sure that it is non gmo and befitting to my dietary preferences as I’ve always been particular about what I eat as a vegetarian and individual that is into a very healthy lifestyle even my moderate intake of certain snacks have to be up to par!

To me they are a much better alternative to the average greasy corn chips on the market and I genuinely like the taste and the crunch without all of that excessive oil these are on the dry side and I like it.

I consistently read the ingredients to everything that I buy I’ve done this ever since I was a youngster since I eat healthy and vegetarian and as I get older I have been even more particular as to what I eat it is just a natural propensity and a spiritual harmony within myself.

I mostly do my own fresh cooking with vegetables, grains and starches as I love my rice, breads and pasta but every once in a while just like everyone else I get tired of cooking, especially when I’ve been working all day I just want to eat quick, chill out, then get winks of sleep.

When I come across new and appealing items to heat up in the oven or to snack on I give it a try and a while ago I purchased these in my opinion good tasting veggie onion rings and broccoli fries.

The ingredients are Potatoes, Broccoli, White Beans, Rice Flour, Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Water, Potato Starch, Corn Starch. Contains less than %2 of: Sea Salt, Tapioca Starch, Locust Bean Gum, Garlic, Xanthan Gum, Tapioca Dextrin for the fries.

Cauliflower, Cooked Navy Beans, Onions, Rice Flour, Expeller Pressed Non-GMO Canola Oil, Yellow Corn Flour, Water, Corn Starch, Rice Starch, Modified Corn Starch, Sugar, Salt, Blackstrap Molasses, Dextrose, Yeast, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Alginate, Low Sodium Sea Salt (Natural Sea Salt, Magnesium, Trace Minerals), Dried Garlic, Spice Extractives (Including Paprika), Citric Acid for the rings and I enjoyed them.

I love onion rings and french fries!

I rarely eat sweets and when I do it also has to be natural or organic and I had found these delicious wheat coated cinnamon apple fig bars that I couldn’t stop eating (so yummy, yummy!).

All of these are vegan certified non gmo products.

Cheese

Cheese

cheese and wineIt has indeed been a while since I’ve consumed any straight up dairy products such as milk, cheese and butter although there may have once in a while been a product that I’ve eaten that may have included a small ingredient or two that I had carefully examined and that didn’t hurt to indulge within.

It is alright from time to time depending on how the consistency is derived and manufactured, however, I strictly do not any longer since within a little over two years now drink the fluids of cows milk. I am fascinated with soy milk.

I also hadn’t eaten any cheese within the past entire two years it wasn’t until January of this year that I helped myself to two slices of a tasty cheesy pizza other than that I’ve been dairy free. I do not even remember the last time that I’ve cooked or ate with butter.

I have found a very good brand of cheese that does not contain any animal rennet but I’d really prefer to try a non dairy product such as “GO Veggie” cheese alternatives before I actually even think to go back to ordinary cheese simply because I have not come into contact with a more better or healthier option that is more suitable to me and my taste.

The Go Veggie brand has quite a few variety and selection of cheeses including Parmesan, Swiss, Mozzarella, American, Cheddar, White cheddar, Cream cheese and a few more.

cheeseI’ll look for it at one of my local supermarkets and maybe test it out, according to the zip code that I entered within the “Where To Buy” section that is represented on their website quite a few of my nearby groceries do supposedly carry the item.

I have found in the past though that the information on websites are not always accurate as far as to what store may actually have the item within stock. It is absolutely nothing that I will fret about or even drive myself crazy with it is not a life or death situation for me it is just a preference.

Pure Rinse

pure fruit drinksFreshly peeled firm bananas are so tasty and produce a high volume of nutritious potassium. On some days I can eat an entire bunch of them as they come five in a bag, “Dole” is my favorite brand.

I’d love a pure and natural cool banana drink the only negative thing about that idea is fresh bananas yield no juice. In order to get that sweet rich banana texture and flavor one would have to chop and mush up the fruit with a fork or blenderize and combine those bananas with another beverage or consistency.

Every banana drink or mix that I’ve ever come across upon the market was always artificially flavored. Not to fret though, there are plenty of other delicious fruit that are able to be turned directly into satisfyingly healthy addictive drinks.

During the early 1990’s I came upon the “Juiceman” watching those infomercials that came on around the wee hours of the night and not so long after I went and purchased my own “Hamilton Beach” brand and tried that famous fresh carrot juice and it was well worth all of the hype at that time.

apple and orange juiceI enjoyed a variety of juiced fresh fruits and vegetables, however, my days at juicing was very short-lived back then due to the fact that meticulously cleaning the blade of the juicer and the remaining contents left over served as a very tiresome inconvenience.

Nevertheless, one cannot deny the pleasures of consuming the health benefits of a freshly designed drink along with it’s reinvigorating taste and cleansing effects because that is all that our bodies do anyhow, and that is extract and absorb the liquid matter from the things that we internalize while we excrete the rest.

Replenishment

Replenishment

fruit and vegetableI promote and am extremely fond of particular fruits and vegetables, and not only do many of them taste real good they are so very nutritious for us to regularly consume.

They are all excellent for the digestive tract/system and aide in natural healing, cleansing and proper bowel elimination.

My grandmother use to plant and grow her own vegetables in our backyard years ago during the eighties when I was a little girl. When the crops were ripe and fit to eat I’d go out and pick then gather up the extra large healthy sized cucumbers, tomatoes and green peppers.

My grandmother also grew cabbage and some other type of vegetables on our property I have nothing but lovely memories of a childhood experience with plant food. I was not the sort of kid that complained or gave their parent a hard time about eating their vegetables at mealtime.

My dog and I use to sit up and eat cold fresh raw carrots together she’d hold the stalk between her paws and chop away. In addition she ate fresh apples, grapes, raisins, seeds and even on occasion the grass that had grown in the front yard.

To some, many kinds of vegetables are not pleasant within flavor and that is true but sometimes it is in the way a dish is seasoned and prepared, because I did not like yellow squash though I had loved the green variety as I had a delicious zucchini and rice mixed platter dazzled with spices once, until I tasted a cousin’s version of the vegetable. From then on I had seen the yellow squash in an entirely different light, a yummy one!

I had eaten canned pineapples since childhood on up yet when I had become a teen I had my very first carves into a fresh one and the flavor was both tart and sweet depending on the variation of how juicy or dry the fruit was.  Afterward, I’d continuously buy fresh pineapples as it had become my favorite fruit out of all the other variety of great fleshy edibles.

Fruit and vegetablesFruits and vegetables also taste good mixed together within a meal whether hot or cold.

I also love sunflower seeds and certain types of nuts but I never cared for almonds, and I do not enjoy seeds or nuts within any food preparation except for sesame seeds on bread or butter pecans within ice cream otherwise I prefer those bits in separate form.

cool waterI absolutely love water as it helps to purify us along with soap as well as nourish and sooth the body from the inside and out.

I prefer to take showers; however, a bath or a firm and heavy sprinkling are both very therapeutic and rejuvenating to the overall well-being and to the senses.

I cannot at all understand people who do not like to wash themselves on a regular basis, those types of individuals who can go for weeks to months without a proper rinse or soak. To me, that kind of behavior is indeed a form of mental illness aside from utter/sheer nastiness.

A thorough wash produces the mind and body with good stimulation and a fresh invigoration even enabling one to get a better nights rest and relaxation.

One just feels better altogether.

When the body is dehydrated water is one of the best internal liquid solutions as the sugars within juices sometimes initiate further thirst. Water cleanses and keeps the kidneys healthy as well as flush out the other toxins and impurities that enter then travel within.

water with limeWater is also an excellent fuel that gives energy to spiritual capacity and manifestation in all forms and aspects.

The essential and beneficial is just as vital as the oxygen that we all breathe, water is life sustaining and we cannot live or do without it in any way possible, and I would not want to.

A Hearty Generation Of Quality

A Hearty Generation Of Quality

flavored rice and chickenThrough out my family’s generations and while I was growing up we were all well-bred and fell fed. We weren’t filthy rich people but we always had and seldom went without. I have family members that had and that still have their own businesses.

My mother’s grandparents on her mother’s side of the family made (farmed and manufactured) and sold their own products down in their native hometown of Virginia when she was a little girl. Their items ranged from food to soap. Her grandfather and grandmother worked together while her uncles pitched in to gather within their profession. My mother’s aunts did not join in the trade altogether.

chickenOne thing that consistently traveled down unto our legacy aside from the many other good circumstances and qualities were our sense of immediate priorities. Along with shelter and convenience, of course, came our food. We were brought up on value and to always have nourishment and maintain sanitary practices.

As I am an “eater” yet nowhere near a “glutton” I have naturally followed in accordance to how I was raised in that fashion.

I take care of my constitution in-taking mainly vegetable proteins and very little animal protein (I only eat poultry and seafood from time to time) as I mostly flourish on a vegetarian diet. Nevertheless, I thrive on tasty dishes as well as what is in correlation to my own internal system.

broccoli and shrimpOur family was knowledgeable of those particular sufficient old time home and herbal remedies that often treated or cured ailments. We often would analyze and recognize a diagnosis within our body before a doctor could. We knew what to do for minor onsets of illness or infection caused by stomach upset, weather changes, insect stings or bites, and so on.

Keeping ourselves clean, safe and healthy was key to our vitality and a good habit to maintain for a lifetime to come. As children we were instilled with the wholesomeness and significance of self love, self respect, independence and the ways of survival, it was just innately within our bloodline.

So my dignified generation of relatives and I had more than nutritious and quality foods to bite off of and chew up we ingested much depth.
